Owen Jones and Jonathan Freedland are joined by the Observer’s Sonia Sodha to discuss how the party leaders fared in their televised battle with Jeremy Paxman and a hostile studio audience. Plus: whatever happened to the ‘Brexit election’?
Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May were grilled by a hostile Jeremy Paxman and awkward questions from a studio audience in the biggest television event of the election so far. The prime minister, who has refused to take part in a straight debate format, came under pressure to explain cuts to police numbers and NHS “efficiency savings”.
Joining Owen Jones and Jonathan Freedland in the studio today to discuss it all is the Observer’s chief leader writer Sonia Sodha.
